Making Back to School - COOL!


Establish a Routine

Bed times, rise and shine times, where do I put my backpack and important notes when I get home—whatever your routine/schedule will be, begin following it at least a week or so before school actually begins. This will help adjust you and your child to the routine early.

Take a School Tour

This is especially important if your child is new to the school system or building. Knowing where to go on the first day can relieve a lot of stress.

Meet With Your Child’s Teacher(s)

Introduce yourselves. Discuss what will be happening in the classroom, any special needs or situations your child may have. Is there any way you can help out in the classroom?

Make Sure All School Records Are Up To Date

Make sure the school has any new phone numbers, changes of address, immunization updates, etc. Having these in an emergency can save precious minutes.

Get All Required Examinations

Try to schedule appointments for sports physicals, immunizations, dental exams, etc. before school starts. This will help avoid absences from school.

Be Sure Your Child Knows Their Address and Phone Number

This is especially necessary if you have just moved!

After School Care

Make necessary arrangements and be sure your child knows where they are to go and what they are to do after school. It is also a good idea (especially for elementary school students) to inform the teacher of these plans also.

Purchase School Supplies

Check with your child’s teacher or school for a list of needed supplies.

Create a Homework Center

Stock it with extra crayons and supplies to complete homework. Make sure it is no television is near and distractions few.

Stress The Importance Of Good Nutrition

Healthy, well-balanced breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners can unleash the Brainiac in your child! Studies have shown that good nutrition helps keep children focused, their energies high, and their moods balanced—all of which are factors that promote learning.
